As part of a comprehensively hardened environment, Microsoft .NET must meet security guidelines as laid out by Microsoft and VMware.

Review the recommendations set out in the appropriate .NET hardening and secure best practice guidelines. Also, review all Microsoft security bulletins regarding the version of Microsoft SQL Server you are using. Failure to follow the hardening recommendations might result in exposure to known security vulnerabilities from insecure Microsoft.NET components.

To verify that your version of Microsoft.NET is supported, see the vRealize Automation Support Matrix.

Contact your Microsoft vendor for guidance on hardening practices for Microsoft products.
